    Try putting the gun in a padded vice with the muzzel pointed down. Then wrap the barrel with wet rags and carefuly heat the suppersor with an accytalen torch (not a propane). Get it hot as fast as you can with out heating the barrel. If you are lucky it will fall off. If not grab it with a pair of pliers and it should come off. If this dont work let it cool slowly and try again. If that dont work carefuly cut it with a dremel or cut off tool. Just make a cut on one side but not all the way thrue. Then use a cold chisel to break it.Install the new one buy heating it and it should drop right on.Good luck And rember to always wear eye protection.
